@jvybihal You version was miss perl-file-sharedir-install package too. This error appear when building package "Can't locate File/ShareDir/ in @INC (you may need to install the File::ShareDir::Install module)". After it installed all work fine.

@kosmoplayer: Have you tried this? - I just tried to build it, all fine. If that does not work, I can investigate.

@jvybihal you PKGBUILD doesn't work. You missed perl-file-sharedir-install and perl-module-install packages in depends string.

I have made PKGBUILD for the nichivo fork. It is quick and little dirty, but it works enough.

There is a new fork that made a couple of improvements over the last year. Haven't had time to try it yet but it would be nice to get cope on smartctl and systemctl :)

I have the same problem/solution as @vikstrous.

vikstrous commented on 2017-06-15 05:17

There's a missing dependency on perl-module-install. After installing that package I was able to install cope-git

Please add the following variables, so other packages can depend on 'cope':

Sorry for the late responses...

Looks related to [1], [2], and [3]. Quoting from [3]:

"The update to glibc-2.18 removes pt_chown which is a security risk. It is not needed on an Arch system given we have /dev/pts.

However, some people appear to have /dev/pts in their /etc/fstab file, which generates it with the wrong permissions. This will result in errors like "grantpt failed: Operation not permitted".

To fix this, remove that line from your fstab file. systemd will take care of generating /dev/pts with the right permissions."


It is a fork (mine), but upstream is dead (i.e., non-existent - the Upstream URL above has been dead since before 2011 ([4] is the most recent copy I could find), and the original GitHub repo [5] doesn't exist, either). According to [6], there has been little actual development in the other forks (mainly fixing issues with perl versions). If there's a different fork that you prefer, which one is it? I'll consider switching, or merging it into mine.

It also clones from GitHub (using the git:// protocol in the source array).

Assuming this is why it's marked out-of-date, I'm unflagging it.

It clones from a fork and also doesn't git clone from Github.
